Fold-able bike is not a new idea and we have already seen many great designs no matter it is still a concept or purchasable already. However, all these designs somewhat have unsatisifying place here and there. Hence, more and more designers devote their effort to make it better. Today, we want to show you another interesting concept – “Somerset” bike” from Kaiser Chang. According to Chang, “The problem most riders are facing are transportation needs between the home and the mass transit system followed by the tail end of a commute to their job. ” Hence, he designed the bike” which has an oval-shaped tube frame that acts as a slide rail, making the front fork slide down along the frame about half of the circular frame to combine two wheels and finally become a handcart, so that that adjustment can take place conveniently. Do you like this idea?
Unlike other folding bike you see on the market, this origami-inspired folding cycle can be folded and put in a flat-packed storage, providing ultra-portability in the urban environment without sacrificing style. The secret of the ultra folding is to use a straightforward two axis folding method that allows bicycle parts to swing into its mode, simply and neatly. Moreover, the dismantled bicycle can be bundled to a neat leather bundle of width 500 mm, length 330 mm and only 205 mm thickness, which makes the on-the-go more practical for urban cyclist. Sounds super cool right? Looking forward to see it on market.
Designed by Valentina Vecchia & Marilena Alberga, “One Shot” is a innovative bike which can be transformed from a full-fledged, fixed-belt bike to a compact, vertical unit easily stored on buses, trains or other easy-access areas. Compared with other folding bikes, there is one thing I like mostly – it is easy to move after folding. Most of folding bikes are transformed into a square-ish thing which cause the bike can’t be moved by itself. However, the considerate folding design of “One Shot” make sure it still can move on its wheel after folding. Love this micro folding bike!
